SUNSET SOLITUDE --
One of my greatest joys is when I feel I am no longer just witnessing nature but that I am a part of the experience. As the sun sets on the flower covered slopes of the Painted Hills in Eastern Oregon, I imagine that the solitary person in front of me was similarly and intimately immersed in this moment in nature.

+Liana Filanever Thank you for your kind words on my previous post. I thought you might enjoy our beautiful sunsets over the Pacific Ocean, as well as our forest and lakes that you commented on.

Agate Beach Yaquina Head Lighthouse- vertical version. In this vertical composition aglow with sunset light, intricate windblown dunes provide foreground interest, while in the background the Yaquina Head Lighthouse stands sentinel. This was a challenging shot to get, as I was being buffeted by the constant high winds that sculpt these dunes.

Agate Beach Yaquina Head Lighthouse- vertical version. In this vertical composition aglow with sunset light, intricate windblown dunes provide foreground interest, while in the background the Yaquina Head Lighthouse stands sentinel. The low angle of light accentuates the complex, seeping forms of the dunes. A driftwood log juts from the sand from the lower left corner of the frame, and leads the eye towards the center of the frame and the lighthouse. The dynamic horizon, aglow with the golden light of sunset, intersects the frame about a third down from the top of the frame. The Yaquina Head Lighthouse is a historic building, construction began on it in 1871. At the time, the location was called Cape Foulweather, and early records list the building as the Cape Foulweather Lighthouse. It is on the central Oregon coast, not far from Lincoln City or Newport. See my other shots of Yaquina Head Lighthouse and also my many other shots of the Oregon coast. See also my other version (horizontal) of this scene. This was a challenging shot to get, as I was being buffeted by the constant high winds that sculpt these dunes.

The autumn color in the Pacific Northwest was unbelievable this year - definitely one for the history books, I think . Often, the summer drought burns off all the leaves early, or early rains turn every leaf into a moldy glob on the tree... but this year was "off the hook."

Middle North Falls, Silver Falls State Park, Oregon.

GOING WITH THE FLOW---
One of the nicest things about G+ is the opportunity to see different places I have not visited. Thanks to Oregon photographers +Susan Chavez and +Jon Ares for posting photos of Sweet Creek Falls near Coastal Oregon. I'm glad I could discover this beautiful location through them and finally experience it myself.
